Brian Mann spent a hot Sunday morning in the Dix Mountain Wilderness. “I’m heading into one of my very favorite swimming holes in the Adirondack Park, a place along the Boquet River. Hopefully soon I’ll be cooling off,” said Mann.
He described the water and said, “This pool is such an idyllic basin of clear water. It’s pretty deep, but the water is so clear you can see right down to the gravel and rock on the bottom. And then at the head of it, there’s this amazing little cascade, just a pile of big boulders that the water tumbles through and then drops down in kind of a double plume into the pool.”
There is a spot that swimmers can jump or dive off of into the pool. Mann said, “The water is just deep green, the color of someone’s eyes, when it goes deep down. It’s just about as inviting as anything could be.”
